Beautiful chocolates in Hellertown

watercress | Jun 7, 2008 12:12 PM

In a strip shopping center (The Shoppes At Hellertown) on the south end of town on 412, there's a tiny place that's passionate about chocolate. It's called Dolce Patisserie (someone I work with told me about it, and it was a little hard to find the phone number, because when I called 411, they had nothing by that name--- turns out they had it misspelled as "dolca"), and the owner makes high-quality chocolates and tarts with all-natural flavors, and he airbrushes them somehow in the most beautiful patterns. The tarts (aside from tasting wonderful) have almost unworldly, sculptural cocoa butter garnishes rising out of them and you just have to see them- I'm not doing it justice. I always am rooting for little guys who care about what they make-- hope he does well. Meanwhile, I went there two days ago, and I'm still thinking fondly of those wonderful sweets. It's near the McDonalds and the big thrift shop and Tru Value hardware and the saucon valley diner, if that helps.
